Inktomi /Yahoo ignores my most important site, everything else is inde

it gets the robots.txt daily but it's not in the index

On another site it indexed the index page and another one along with a few ancient links. The most important site is not in the db at all.

The robots.txt is valid and I don't think I've done anything to spam, never had any problems. The url are apache re-written and fully indexed by Google.
I had blocked indexing (now it's back on) of the /cgi/ bin but I don't think that should matter since the URL were re-written anyway.

any advice, suggestion?
I just e-mailed to spamcrusader@inktomi.com as someone suggested...

This is just a complete guess but you might try using some absolute href's for urls that point deeper into your site. I had had trouble with ink not understainding some relative url's at one time and after I got it past that I got in.

I'll try it even though it sounds strange that with all the work and money they didn't think of that. I guess you never know.
